Uganda Now : Between Decay and Development, Paperback Book

Uganda Now : Between Decay and Development Paperback

Part of the Eastern African Studies series


Can the revolutionary government of Yoweri Museveni's National Resistance Movement put Uganda back on the road from decay to development?

These informed assessments put the present situation in context.

The contributors assembled as Museveni's guerrillas were launching their final bid for power.

They have finalized their contributions in the light of the Museveni government's initial period of power.

Contributions by Ugandan academics and politicians interlock with those by scholars from across the world who have a concern for Uganda.

Historians examine the period of colonialism. There are political studies of the quarter century since independence.

There are detailed analyses of the economic realities for the Ugandan government in the period of international debt.

The central role of education in national development is given due prominence.

Ali A. Mazrui ends the book by asking \u2018Is Africa Decaying?' The editors have put the consideration of the case of Uganda's recent history within the context of Africa's development crisis. Uganda has presented in an aggravated form the crisis common to many other African countries: infrastructural breakdown, mounting foreign debt, military regimes and waves of refugees.
